Please let me know if I should be posting this elsewhere:

This mode lets me do something awesome.
However, the default is to do a reload whenever the buffer has been altered. This causes the browser to flash as I'm typing. It's distracting and annoying.

Is there a way to alter this, so that the browser reloads only when I save the buffer?
Thanks.

This reload-as-you-type behaviour is actually intended. I find it very convenient.
Here's a slight modification of the above code which restricts reloading to trigger only when the buffer is saved.
